Apple had allegedly signed a deal with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) for the processors, but now it appears that deal may not be in the works anymore.
The new report says the buyer/supplier relationship will remain into the foreseeable future, as Apple has declared the company a critical partner.
TSMC will still produce a small amount of the chips, perhaps under 10 percent.
Samsung has streamlined the process and is producing the chips at their new plant in Texas.
